Damn near impossible to wear out or wreck a leaf spring on a 1911 unless you cut one of the fingers with a file.

You can bend the chit out of them and not hurt a thing other than add/subtract some pounds to your trigger pull.

Likely a 2 minute fix by anyone familiar with a 1911.  But if it were I been wrenching 1911s for 35 years as a living, I'd suggest tweak the thing, left side and center forward a few mm and leave the grip safety, right side leaf, alone.  Put it back together and test fire.  If the trigger isn't resetting  it aint the leaf spring.

"he now thinks that the problem may be the disconnector or the recess for same."  My thought as well.  Again a 2 minute job to fix either or both.  That $112 should have covered it all and then some, including ammo and range time.

A piece of the barrel is missing?  If so, the gun may be toast.  You need to post a photo or two so we can see what you are talking about.

The 1862 Ubertis suffer from the same arbor fit problems as their bigger guns.  Fix the arbor, install Treso nipples and switch to Remington 10s and it will help a lot.  I bought a pair, even put little miniature cap guards in them thinking they might make semi-decent main match revolvers for people with small hands.  They are still miserable little beasts.

I learned very quickly at a night shoot to shut my eyes as I pull the trigger so I wouldn't be blinded for about 5 seconds with each shot. Your photo illustrates the obvious.

I'm not sure if it is the right movie but I think it was in the remake of "3:10 from Yuma" where the main characters were being fired upon at night in their camp and the brush was lit up with each shot by the ambushers. It was the first realistic looking nightime BP flashes I had seen in a movie.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, but here it goes. When did the commercial manufacture of BP ammunition stop in the U.S.? I have read that it stopped in the 30s and I have read that it stopped in the 50s. So which is it?

Sometimes it takes an image to imprint on the mind just what words can't quite say.  So, here's my side kick delivering death with his sixgun.  One look should tell you why the piff-ting hurry up go fast shooters just don't get it.

I have a number of fine SASS capable pistols, but none point, shoot and score like my brace of 1860 open tops.  They are fragile compared to my RVs and ROAs but they just point better.  It may be me, or my hands or even my old eyes, but I get more clean matches with these.  They have Kirst Konverter cylinders and ejector rods.  I load them with Cowboy 45 Special ammo with a compressed charge of Schuetzen FFFg under J/P 45-200 Big Lube bullets and they hit where they look.

I don't quite know how to qualify the accuracy in match shooting that they deliver but they have become my go to guns for Cowboy Action shooting.  I shoot Frontier Cartridge Gunfighter exclusivly and one of these in each hand comes natural to me.  What a joy to shoot.

I think you've got that backwards. As the owner of two Shiloh 50-70's (one a carbine), one Shiloh Business Rifle in 45-70, two .50 Shiloh '63's (one a carbine), a 45-70 Rem RB, a .43 Spanish RB,  two H&R Trapdoors (one a carbine) and a Browning '86, I beg to differ .....

When I was casting about trying to decide what calibre to order for a carbine, I spoke to the late Dave Higginbottom(sp.?), founder  of Lone Star Rifle. His advice was a 50-70.

Why? the same amount of powder and lead that would rattle your teeth in a light 45-70 is tame in a 50-70. Why? He explained it as simple ballistic physics - the greater diameter = less pressure = less recoil.

Your comment cannot be based on experience.

I would recommend sticking with a cartridge based on the .45-70 head, rather than the .50-70 head, as the smaller diameter means less backthrust on the breech, though the difference isn't significant. (Recoil will be less with the smaller round.)  Best of luck with your project.

try canting ( Leaning )  the revolver to the right as you cock will help the frags fall out much better....
the colts were also designed to cocked fairly quickly as you tilt it to the right....any attempt to cock it click by click is just askin fer a cap jam...
